CAN President visits CDS, hails military’s operational successes

The President Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Most Revd. Daniel Okoh has hailed the military for the successes being recorded in dealing with the nation’s security challenges.

The Director, Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Tukur Gusau disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

Okoh gave the commendation when he led the leadership of CAN on a courtesy visit to the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Christopher Musa, in Abuja.

“We need peace, without peace we cannot pursue any developmental projects and we need peace to move forward.

“The Church has seen significant progress in the fight against criminality in the country under the watch of the CDS,” the CAN president said.

According to the CAN President, the visit was to reciprocate a similar one by the CDS to the CAN Headquarters a few months ago, which he said, has yielded many fruitful results.

Okoh noted that the earlier visit by the CDS also created more understanding among the Christian community with regard to the efforts by the military to combat the menace of insecurity in the country.

Reacting, the CDS said that prayers had been the spiritual backing behind the successes of the armed forces and appealed to CAN not to relent on its prayers to the nation and the military, calling for righteous deeds and actions by Nigerians to help overcome the security challenges.

Musa added that the mandate of the military was to protect all Nigerians irrespective of any religious beliefs, and assured continued meaningful interactions with stakeholders towards ensuring lasting peace in the country.
